No real design insights were given. It was a very very basic intro to the tools needed and basic flower care.

This book is for florists and people wanting a better overall experience when working with flowers. There are lots of design books out there for inspiration. This is not that book, but a guide on the philosophy and workflow of some of the worlds most accomplished florists.

Great fundamentals for the novice florist
Reviewed in the United States on November 12, 2020
This book is so helpful for the novice florist. It helps you to navigate the specifics needed for a great arrangement - choice of vase, flowers, colors etc. The book helped me think about design elements that I hadn’t previously considered. Super useful information!

No substance
Reviewed in the United States on June 13, 2021
This book has very little substantive information. It is not a practical guide to flower arranging. It''s a soft sell for the school with a few nice photos of flowers.

I bought several new books on flower arranging this Christmas, and this was, by far, the worst. It is badly written, needing an editorial eye, and it has very little really useful information in it. There are constant contradictions in the advice: have a plan and taking a specific list to the flower market so you don''t give in to spur of the moment decisions, but be creative and you might not know what you fancy until you see it. These two points are repeated over and over. Far worse, however, are the arrangements. If you like the stumpy modern look, you may like the book more than I did. Many of the arrangements are uptight and forced, architectural in a Brutalist manner, or just short and stumpy. Personally I like a little more movement, a more natural approach. The ideas about colour seem very old fashioned, going back to the colour wheel which I think most contemporary floral designers recognise does not really take into account many of the colours they like to use. I may also have been a little put off by the touch of arrogance in the tone of the writer. I certainly would be put off going to the Flower School after reading this.
